Kiwanis Club Sponsors
2010 Annual Roadblock
Two members of the Delta Zeta Sorority,
(l.to r.) Maggie Brunner and Lauren Simpson collected funds at
the Kiwanis Roadblock for Kids
This year the various participants raised slightly in excess
of $1,000 which was donated to the City of Richmond Parks and
Recreation Department to support the annual Halloween event for
children. The city had decided to do away with this event due
to a budget shortfall, so the Kiwanis Club of Richmond stepped
in to become a major sponsor of the annual Richmond Halloween
Hoe Down which will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October
The Richmond Kiwanis Club is partnering with the Richmond
Parks and Recreation Department to help support the inflatables,
the hayride,a banner for this event, and posters for schools.
Other items required for this event will be Port O Potties,
gourds for Pumpkin Painting, generators for food vendors, a sound
system for the DJ booth, additional candy, advertising, and postage.
Kiwanian and Key Club volunteers will assist with the Dog
Costume Contest, Pumpkin Face painting, Halloween Bingo, Pumpkin
Bucket Game and Ghost Bean Bag Toss.
Assisting with the 2010 Roadblock for Kids fundraiser were
the Delta Zeta Sorority (a philanthropic sorority at Eastern Kentucky
University), and the Model School Key Club. Both have been long
time supporters to Kiwanis fundraisers and projects.
Also participating in the 2010 Roadblock for Kids fundraiser
this year were five Eastern Kentucky University exchange students
from the Liaoning University of Technology in Jinzhou, China.
The names of the young people who assisted in the fundraiser
may be found with their photographs.
